Water Water Everywhere And Not A Drop To Drink...

Last Monday (the day after Mother's Day) I got a phone call from the alarm company for the school saying that the fire alarm was going off and that someone needed to meet with the fire department at the school ASAP. I called the building and grounds guy and then Adam and I got in the car and headed to the school. Sure enough the fire department was there and inside. The kiln room had overheated and so the sprinklers came on. The sprinklers do not come on until it hits 165-170 degrees in a room so it must have been really hot. The whole west hallway of the school flooded.
I took Adam with me and he was a huge help with the cleanup. He moved furniture, boxes and equipment. He did whatever was asked of him by the adults. The school called in a disaster clean up company but there was still tons to do. We stayed at the school until 10:30 helping to clean. Then we headed home and I called one of the classes and told them that their room was flooded and that class was canceled for the next two days. All of the kids were very happy!

It is hard to tell but but this water is about 4 to 5 inches deep.
